Awesome shot - although what a sad day for DC-10 passenger jets. Wonder how much longer for MD-11s.

A great photo and a great photographer, usually if a unique event is going to happen ( such as the last landing of an airliner ) I would not risk anything that can compromise the image. 5 stars to the photographer who chose to shoot this image with this beautiful motion blur in the background. A fitting final photo for such a fine aircraft.

Both upper and lower red beacons AND the first puff of main gear tyresmoke ~ sensational way of saying 'farewell' to this beautiful trijet.

Does anyone know where this DC-10 went after its last revenue passenger flight? Freighter conversion, Kemble, or even an American boneyard?

Awesome! Sad to know that there will be no more DC-10 commercial passenger flights, but it is nice to know that some of the history will be preserved through great photography like this. Also it is refreshing to have a #1 photo that is not from that famous beach or a helicopter shot taken from the west coast.....I do like them, but it is overkill. Well done Charles!

The picture itself is self-explanatory why it deserves a 5-stars rating

So long DC-10! You'll certainly be missed. @ the previous comment about the last MD-11 flight, sadly KLM will operate their last MD-11 service on Oct. 25, 2014! :(

Really nice panning shot. The background blur just says "in this moment, this machine was alive".

The photo turned it to look like a brand new aircraft. Great farewell shot of one of the greatest airliners of all times.

This photo's got perfection written all over it. A worthy tribute for sure, and flawlessly executed. An instant classic if there ever was one!

The first and only time I had the privilege to travel on board a DC-10, when I was a kid, I decided I wanted to be a pilot. To me it's the most beautiful passenger airplane ever done.
